Scope and Contents

Description: Two young children stare at three Fabergé eggs, including the Imperial Tsarevich Easter Egg and Imperial Easter Egg with Revolving Miniatures, which are all set on a pedestal at eye level inches away from their faces. In the 1950s and 1960s, the museum regularly set up publicity shots with children that allowed them to take a closer look at (and often touch!) the Fabergé artworks.


  • Late 1950s/early 1960s
